QuotationI was reading about Hopkins' conversion when I dropped the book and rushed out of the house and went to see Fr. Ford. All this reading covered a period of a year and a half, or two years-during which I read almost all of Fr. Wieger's translations of Buddhist texts-without understanding them.
